gschem - gEDA/gaf Schematic Capture


gschem [OPTION ...] [--] [FILE ...]


gschem is a schematic capture application, and is part of the gEDA (GPL Electronic Design
Automation) toolset. It is used to draw electronic schematics, which describe the logical
structure of an circuit. Schematics are made up of symbols, which represent the various
components in the circuit, and are obtained either from a standard library or created by
the user. The connections between components represented by nets (wires). Schematics may
be printed to a PostScript file for printing or further conversion to other output
formats. Output to various image formats is also supported.

gschem can also be used for editing symbols for use in schematics.


-q, --quiet
Quiet mode. Turn off all warnings/notes/messages.

-v, --verbose
Verbose mode. Output all diagnostic information.

-r, --config-file=FILE
Specify an additional configuration file. Normally gschem searches for the system
configuration file, then `$HOME/.gEDA/gschemrc', and finally for a `gschemrc' file
in the current working directory. This option allows the user to specify an
additional rc file which is read after all the other rc files have been are read.

Prepend DIRECTORY to the list of directories to be searched for Scheme files.

-s FILE Specify a Scheme script to be executed at startup.

-c EXPR Specify a Scheme expression to be evaluated at startup.

-o, --output=FILE
Specify a filename for PostScript output. This command line argument is useful
when running gschem from a shell script and with a Scheme script. The filename
can be changed through the print dialog box.

-p Automatically place the window. This may be useful if running gschem from the
command line and generating output.

-h, --help
Print a help message.

-V, --version
Print gschem version information.

-- Treat all remaining arguments as schematic or symbol filenames. Use this if you
have a schematic or symbol filename which begins with `-'.


Optionally, schematic or symbol FILEs may be specified on the command line. Any schematic
or symbols specified are loaded at startup as separate documents in the schematic editor.

If no FILEs are specified, a blank schematic is created for editing.


specifies the search directory for Scheme and rc files. The default is
